She just drives me crazy. Everything is so... awkward. Everything gets drawn out. She can't be open about stuff. She's not secretive as such, she just isn't transparent about things so it's all mysterious questions and abrupt messages. And she likes to be the one 'with knowledge' and then dish it out at her leisure. She's so full of her own issues she can't just interact like a normal person. It makes me sad a lot because she's missing out (and has done all her life) but also makes me angry when she is just *difficult*.
I've tried in so many ways to improve things. It makes me upset that I am happiest if I never actually see her. My lad is the same :( :(
Just needed to vent!!

Welcome to the shite mother's club. Plenty of room here sadly.

I'll join the club! Although I will give her a bit of credit, i got a Birthday card last year! My 2nd birthday card from her since I was 5. Get in!!

P - does that mean she's turning over a new leaf....? :(

Well you never know! But I doubt it! The only other birthday card I got was when I.was 15, and she put in a cheque for £14 as "I only had £15 left in the world and had to use £1 for the bus" then again, I hadn't heard from her for 9 years so pretty lucky i got anything really!! Shite mothers suck :-(. Mines like yours, so full of her own "issues" she hasnt got time for anyone else.

Crikey, interesting approach she's got!

Ah P welcome!
How's this corker, my mum popped over on Sunday to pick up a bag of clothes I had for her - not to see L or anything. She asked after my sister and I replied about my niece's birthday (it was last Sunday) her response: "She didn't tell me it was her birthday!" as in her daughter didn't tell her it was her granddaughters birthday. So has she made contact with granddaughter? Nope!

I'm so excited that we have a club now! I'm used to me, Belle and QI having a whinge together! My mum sounds a bit like yours...she believes knowledge is some sort of control over you, or one up on you and your life. Bloody annoying!!
Welcome to our club lol xxx

How could she not contact your niece, Belle? Crazy lady.
Munchkin, thanks for the welcome! Wonder if they have a club too...

Oh Belle that is a corker!
Thanks for the welcome :-)
The other day I had "Something happened at the beginning of the year me and your Dad broke up, but I don't know if you know so I can't tell you" followed later by "I can't tell you, I just can't"
Well fab, thanks for that Mum!
Oh Counter, I could just hear her now....
